Our Clients Website Security & Monitoring

Most of our clients have 24/7 Security & Monitoring which means

These clients websites have had world-class 24/7 Security & Monitoring. Which gives great peace of mind to our clients & for us as their website & hosting administrators. The software helps with &/or supplies;

  • Creates an effective firewall for websites
  • Blocks out hackers to the website
  • Blocks users who attempt & fails to log in to many times
  • Monitors the website software, from base functionalities to add ons like website plugins etc.
  • Reports by email & in website admin dashboard, the number of attacks & blocked IPs & their origin.

However, no matter whatever the security monitoring or firewall is it can only protect against what possible breaches that it knows. So even the smartest, most flexible, most adaptive and most up to date firewall is it still can’t give 100% guarantee nothing will penetrate.
What we do know is that you are 99.9999% safe, when all updates are done as requested by the security monitoring software. And that the website’s admin has extremely strong passwords.
So if you get a warning from us or our software, please act on it straight away, or ask us to help you.

However, the Biggest Security Threat is YOU or Your Staff

  • If you use a weak or moderate password for the website login, email or computer logins.
  • If you don’t have good & updated internet & email security on every computer
  • If you open an email that his affected by a virus, trojan, spyware or malware
  • If you click on an email link that is effective
  • If you visit websites that are not trusted
  • If you click on a link to a website that is affected by a virus, trojan, spyware or malware

Peoples misconceptions

That any software that protects you from any virus, trojan, spyware or malware will give you 100% protection.

Spam Assassin

Spam Assassin is email server software that can be set on a client email server which a Webmail Console. The email server we are referring to is the standard email server that comes with Website hosting. It is not referring to email servers like Google G Suite or Microsoft Essential Mail Server.
Spam Assassin is software that can be accessed from your Webmail Console. Spam Assassin has 5 levels of security, however, the program only is a spam filter, NOT a virus, trojan, spyware or malware program
In Conclusion;

  • software to monitor something only monitors that eg website security.
  • firewall software needs to be kept updated and is never 100% secure whether it is a website, server, email or mobile
  • alerts for updates should be done straight away
  • no email program can stop what a human does in regard to clicking, opening or visiting links that can infect his computer, emails or hosting server.
